This humble looking little apparatus is a godsend for small businesses. This one is the Square which allows me to have credit card sales anywhere I can connect to the internet and have my android or Iphone. It is supplied to small businesses for free and I have been using it for about a year. I now laugh when I get a delivery from a huge multi-national delivery service or go to Kid City and they are hand writing paper slips for credit card sales. When I bring out the Square and my phone, some people seem to be bamboozled and perplexed, but I have not had anybody reject the offer so far!
I am not being paid for this blog post I promise, even if it sounds like a promotional. I just would like to let you know about my own good experience. The only downside has been using it in metal roofed venues, where internet service can be poor. When I am out in the wilds of Manitoba with no cash machine for many, many kilometres, it is great to have a mobile device!
